Okay, survey time. Do you use a case to protect your smartphone? Well according to a recent survey by the NPD Group, approximately 25% of smartphone owners do not use a case at all. The NPD Group is a market research firm based in Port Washington, New York. They have been studying consumer usage of electronics (and a dozen other industries) since 1984.
Their most recent survey (officially titled “Smartphone Case Segmentation Study”) asked more than 3,200 U.S. consumers ages 13 and up about their preferences regarding phone cases in September of 2013. What they found was surprising: 25% of smartphone users do not use a case to protect their phone.
As we grow increasingly reliant on our gadgets, we sometimes can’t help but expect our work to be readily available at our fingertips. Gadgets provide us with utmost convenience, and as a result, we end up being too dependent on our smartphones and tablets. But they can only do so much. For instance, they can only provide you with a keypad that’s as good a size as your smallest fingers. If you have big fingertips, they just won’t work for you. This is the problem sought to be resolved by the all new myType mobile typing pad while also offering undisputed portability.
Television, in our current technological atmosphere, is no longer something that’s bound to the four, sleek corners of a flat screen LCD. It’s been possible for a long while now to be able to use your laptop or desktop as a TV with your very own personalized programming. And with the ability to download series through services like iTunes, the definitions related to television have been loosening and accommodating increasingly variable setups. One of these variable setups takes the form of Dyle Mobile TV, a service that provides mobile devices with live broadcasts of programs from local channels. What’s more is that most Apple mobile devices can now access Dyle Mobile TV thanks to the new BelkinDyle Mobile TV receiver for iOS.
